11:48 pm
will try to strike a, listen, i'll wake i'll hang back and make something appropriate to say. donald trump can be bombastic. tonight you saw tim kaine almost can't wait to get the answer out, want to get him hand up for the teacher at times and pence who would be, you know, holding resolve and being calm and everything else. >> so they were really opposite, you know, if opposites attract, that's why they're running mates. >> it's true. but also pence kind of not a politician, where he came off as the consonant politician tonight. >> anything that wasn't addressed that you think they should have taken a look at more? i wish they had gone over tax policy more. where are we gonna get all of this money for wonderful programs. >> you mean they weren't specific? >> i know. isn't it shocking? but i think person who had the highest bar to cross tonight was pence because let's face it, donald trump had a disastrous
11:49 pm
statements and he really needed to hit it out of the park tonight, and he just didn't do that. and in that sense, he is the loser. >> we showed earlier the two of them talking over one another. how much of that turns the audience off and perhaps turns the channel? well, especially now when we have play-off baseball it can be a turn-off. >> yeah, that's a thing that a lot of people on social media talking about tonight that this is evolving. i guess the name calling, and they talk about the n this he they say oh, you called our -- you know, back and forth, it's like you hear on the playground when you're a kid. these are candidates for vice-president and they still do this. don't they understand the people don't want that? it makes you think of barack obama/romney just four years ago, doesn't it. i was watching that debate thinking charlie baker would look awfully good as a presidential nominee. >> right. >> he said that -- he's not looking at that road. >> they all say that.
11:50 pm
interesting to see in his favorable approval rating right now and see how it all plays out down the road. that's the thing. we talked about it earlier, when they sat down at that desk tonight, it was almost as if you looked at them and say, okay, adults in the room. kids go and play in the other room, with very to talk politics. right, and you think boy this is gonna be a very problematic election because i think that so many people are sitting on the fence right now, they're really just gonna toss up a coin in the year to decide. >> bottomline from tonight, what did you take away? decent job, but not good enough. he stopped -- you know, well, he staunched the bleeding but didn't so it, the trump campaign. >> via political historian and author tom wayland, thank you. the real clear politics average has hillary clinton 4 points ahead of donald trump heading into their second presidential debate. that will happen on sunday, and it will air live right here on fox 25. hillary clinton attacked donald trump on the campaign

11:58 pm
a lot of hurricane matthew tonight, let's fly off to the caribbean, is shall we. sounds like a great idea, actually, to haiti and cuba. this is where the storm is hitting tonight, category iv, matthew has made two landfalls at that strength but now down to 130 miles per hour. down to 130 miles per hour, and forecast continues tracking northward. it has shifted a little bit to west of north at last check. and that's why the track shifts to the west a little bit, by 8:00 a.m., a category iv over very warm water, we'll have to watch for anything, kind of an intensification first thing in the morning. by 8:00, 130 miles per hour coming through the bahamas, hitting nassau during the nighttime, early-morning hours thursday. by the afternoon into grand bahamas freeport, and bahamas. but here is the threat from florida. hurricane warnings and watches
11:59 pm
of the possible track certainly encompasses the east coast of florida, and look how close the storm wants to track. category 3 major hurricane still by friday evening. now, if it follows the center line, it's just offshore of jacksonville, a slight jog to the west and every single model run has trended it a little bit to the west, onshore in eastern florida. it would be a total mess. it's already going to be messy but it would be much worse if it comes a little farther to the west. it could still go farther to the east, do this point, no at this juncture. it comes up through the carolinas, or by the carolinas as a category ii. major implication that this is inland already and starting to weaken dramatically or farther out to sea at this point. the center point keeps it right along the coastline and the official track keeps it going north-eastward, south of new england, farther out to the south, although, new england would be on the fringe of the western edge of these tracks, seems like we would be out of the woods at this point.
12:00 am
and here is why. all those computer forecasts we put together as a spaghetti plot, all includesser -- clustered together into florida, one inland and that would be weakening over land. these then want to turn towards the northeast, except for a couple of those spaghetti plot models that are turning to the right and actually start coming southward, looping around. can that happen, yeah. if they run into a block in the atmosphere. the block would come in the form of this cold front. everything has been p on what this cold front is going to do. a faster movement could either sweep this out to sea or block it as it wants to do with some of these computer charts, if it were slower, it is could scoop it up and make an alley for the storm to come up here. that's why it's so hard to get a hurricane here. you need perfect conditions for it to move, and with the way the front is now moving, it would be pushed farther out to sea or blocked, and that's why the track has shifted when it gets past the carolinas farther east.
